Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KD-36FS130 36" TV
All of a sudden, in the middle of a show, the TV channel changed from 3 to 6. At first, I couldn't change it to any other channel. It just scrolled 6, 66, and 666. Now I can get the tuner to rest on a station, but it changes back in a few seconds, unless I lock it in, which is the poor solution I am implementing now, with channel 3 (for the cable). Anyone have an idea what's going on? Thanks.
I think this may be more of a fault with the uPC area on the main board than a tuner failure. It is possible to have both at fault, but this would be rare.
The numbers you see on the screen is from a pre-scaler circuit that drives a font generator in one of the IC's near to the uPC area. If you see the numbers changing this more from the uPC than from the tuner iteslf.
